    Blah blah - watch stuff no one else gets...but you love

    A companion thread for Kath's.

    So what watch thing do you like that everyone else...doesn't?

    For me, it's little dressy ladies watches with diamonds. I have two, which I almost never post because everyone else here pretty much hates diamonds on watches.

    Here are my two (and yes, the second pic is stolen from the internet):

    Back on topic: I can't think of any preference of mine that at least a few others wouldn't appreciate

    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    Is this the outer limit of your unorthodoxy?

    edit: actually, your love of TAG would count as a minority taste

    Panerai watches...lots of members are not a fan of them,but I like them,and that's what matters

    Also,the Omega craziness,despite having a speedy,I'm still not sold on any other models they make...even the speedy DSOTM (yup,I like watch with high tech materials like ceramic cased pam)

    I doubt anyone would honestly say that aside from TAG's ambitious MSRP they're mostly good-looking watches.

    Maybe not everyone, but a lot of people don't like regulators, but I do.
